My name is Carol Cooper Ivkovich, and until Monday morning I was a part of the Historic Hidden Georgia group. Sunday someone posted for the 1st time going into a building messing with documents and taking pictures, she indicated that she found a box of checks. She also posted receipts and said the man’s name on the receipts was the same name on the check, this was personal information and I wondered why the property owners would want to post that information. When I made a comment glad, she had permission or owned the property, she responded that she did not own the property nor did she receive permission, and felt that it was perfectly fine to do this. Which started others threatening and calling me names and using curse words, one just said “bit__” and another said “bit__” and the f word. Someone called me a troll, a troll is from fairy tales. Which I reported to administrators. I thought this was a group that did the right thing when it came to private property. Seems I was wrong, as I was blocked for daring to state that private property should be respected. The group appears to advocate for people to go onto and into private property to go through people’s possessions and for the sole purpose to post pictures. At no time was I disrespectful to anyone, nor did I curse or state a false fact. In fact, I only requested to know if the owners provided permission. I reported the threats, name calling and cursing, because I thought that was against their rules. None of my posts were disrespectful or false nor did I curse, threaten or name call or break any rules unless they have a rule that they want the group to enter into private property without permission, I respect private property. The person who posted said the administrators condoned and encouraged entering into private property without permission for posting in the group, which seems to be accurate as I was blocked for asking about entering private property without permission to post personal information. I feel this needs to be addressed. Monday morning, I was going to search to find the owner of the property in question, to let them know that 58,000 people now know where the property is, know their personal information and that pictures were posted and those 58,000 people were told anyone can enter and the property and is supposed to be haunted. This is how I came to find out that I had been blocked, I have no way of ascertaining the information necessary to locate the owner. I feel that it is imperative that the owners be contacted and informed of the situation. I contacted the group owner who referred me to Woody Harrison the moderator. He has me blocked for questioning about posters entering into private property without permission. I used a friends account to contact him with my concerns on Monday and I have not heard back from him, this is why I am now reaching out to you to help. I think the law is public property and if private property from public view you can post without permission, but when you enter into the property without permission, to take pictures, go through personal belongings, you have violated several things, trespass, and not receiving permission to post any information obtained by entering the private property without permission, which is invasion of privacy and public disclosure of private information, which would then put Facebook and the group in question in a position to be liable for damages. The proof of this is on the post that are put up and 58,000 people are in the group. I did not expect that I would be blocked for reporting cursing, threats, name calling by others, because the only thing I said was private property. Therefore, I have no screen shots or names, but since I reported the name calling, cursing and threats to the administrators I am sure they have the information. I have no idea why I was blocked except I called them out on not respecting private property. I attempted to get this taken care of without involving you they will not respond. Thank you for taking this seriously and looking into this matter, I also understand that we are all coping with the situation right now, I am working from home and have many things to do once we are able to return to the office.

Not sure, but at the very least the property owner needs to be contacted and advised that 58k people now know where his property is and that they were told that they could enter, and that their personal information was posted
